Dachshund News Roundup!

Proving once again that there's nothing more American than baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Dachshunds, here's a Dachshund News Roundup on another beautiful summer day, July 6, 2009. Can we get a woof? Above, these red smooths, 'Ralph' and 'Moe,' wore their allegiance around their necks at the 77th annual Independence Day Parade in Clawson, Michigan on Saturday. Read all about the event at The Oakland Press.

Kisses! This red smooth aptly named 'Streak' holds nothing back for his human Cheyenne Turner, after he won the first heat of the Rusty Hylton Memorial Dachshund Derby Saturday afternoon during the Fayetteville Heritage Festival in West Virginia. Money raised from the event was donated to the Fay-ette County Sheriff’s Department K-9 unit. Read more about the Heritage Festival at The Register-Herald.

Check out the ears of this patriotic 3-time-champ in her weight division of the Kennywood Park Wiener 100 dog race! Yep, it's 4-year-old 'Sadie Lady,' one of the fastest dogs in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and her human Jade McLeery, 14. Read an entire article dedicated to Sadie at Pittsburgh Live.

And finally, remember 'Red Rocket,' the 3-legged-Dachshund who was found as a stray and being cared for thanks to the Magnum Fund at Heartland Animal Hospital in Bel Aire, Kansas? Well....great news! He's got a new home and a new blog. Keep up with all his adventures at the Red Rocket Report.

Have a great Monday.
